To SELL Class III firearms, you must be a dealer that has been licensed to buy and sell class III guns (also known as a SOT- Special Occupational Tax) To OWN a class III firearm, you do not "get a license". Transfer of that gun to you requires it be transferred by a Class III dealer, and the transfer approved by the BATFE.

What is a good place to buy class 3 weapons?

First, you have to find Class III firearms which are for sale. Most of your Class III dealers won't actually keep them in stock - they'll receive them for you once you buy one, get the permit approved, and pay the tax stamp. To find one which is for sale, you can look online at Class III firearms forums, auction sites like Gun Broker, Auction Arms, or Guns America, places like that. You'd actually buy them direct from the owner in most cases, then have a Class III licenced FFL dealer do the receiving and paperwork for you.
